Default Flea Market/bazaar - How Much and Where?

hi all

I am intending to organise a flea market/bazaar sometime this year and would like to hear your comments!

a. how much are you willing to pay for a stall per day?
b. where would you think would be perfect?
c. which is the best bazaar you've participated/gone to?

your feedback would be valuable for us when planning for the next big thing.
thank you!

Heavy traffic flow is very important, and cannot exceed 30dollars per day, like the sculpture square, it can be done but provided they must share with people like 25dollars each, then will make profit margin, cause many people no count their own labour cost, that is you, you mangae the store of course must have at least $50 a day for your own pay.

1. Price should be comfortable for the vendor and organizer, especially during this kind of economic as people are very cautious with spending. I should say not more than $30 for outdoor, and $50-$70 for air-conditioned. Price suggested was assumed for kind of 2 days event.

2. Preferably in City area, at least there are more different type of shopping people.

3. I tried MAAD, and would say it all depends. Wanted to try Clarke Quay but veeeerrrrry exp. I wonder how to cover the rental

a. how much are you willing to pay for a stall per day?

depending on location, aircon, table size.
generally,
$20 - $30 for 2ft x 2ft

b. where would you think would be perfect?

easily accessible e.g. walk 5mins from mrt/bus-stop
i understand cheap and crowded place is hard to achieve, if place is obscure from general public (e.g. behind some big, accessible building), marketing like banner is expected.

c. which is the best bazaar you've participated/gone to?

still the good old lime flea. i remember rent was $20 only? location was quite good also

a. probably $20 to $50 per day. would also depend on venue, table, outdoor/aircon, lights (if nite bazaar) etc things provided, publicity done, expected crowd..
b. places near mrt/bus stop
c. fleatique (my sales are always v good! haha) & crossroads (the organiser was very helpful, the 2 tables was very good bargain for $40 per day, the sales was v good too)

keep me informed when your event is up

I prefer a special theme for the bazaar i.e. Children Wear Bazaar, Craft Bazaar , Toys Bazaar, Fashion Bazaar or Family Bazaar.
